There have been reports that surfaced in the past that Laura Prepon and Tom Cruise had been on some dates but The NY Post says that even though reps for the couple deny a romance, the two are definitely dating. Tom needs someone right now. It feels like since the Katie Holmes breakup, that he has disappeared. The only time we got to see his strange looking face was not that long ago in London at an awards show. Otherwise he has kept a very low profile. Laura Prepon, a fellow $cientologist also keeps a low profile. She finally has had some career success on Orange Is The New Black but presumably Tom would want her to appear only in projects he picks so her career would descend right back into nothingness. Tom likes publicity. He likes to show the world when he is with a woman. Laura has never been that person and I think it would be strange for her to suddenly want to change all that and hit red carpets and be forced to appear in photo ops while looking like a happy couple. I'm pretty sure she would do anything for Scientology so maybe this is her next step with them. It makes sense for Tom because he would have someone who is already in the organization and wouldn't want to leave.
